PotBS - Preview @ Games Radar
Games Radar takes a look at Flying Lab's Pirates of the Burning Sea.
Armed with a cutlass and the perfect pirate hat, we took a crash course in PotBS’ combat system. It seems like every new MMO is trying to distance themselves from the static combat canonized by the WoWs and EverQuests out there, and PotBS follows suit. Don’t expect the usual click and forget fights you’re used to. Each enemy you face will have a balance bar at their feet. When the bar’s green, your attacks aren’t likely to do any damage to your foe. The trick is to whittle down their balance bars with light attacks to throw them off their feet before finishing them off with more powerful blows.
